Unknown-2 Where should I even start? Reading Rainbow is probably the TV show I remember and cherish most from my childhood. I can still list my favorite stories and celebrity guests. I remember wanting a pet pig just so I could name him Perfect, hoping that my own paintbrushes would suddenly become magical like Liang’s, and trying to convince my father to make us fruit stew for dinner. Reading Rainbow was one of the best shows public television has ever given us and as an adult I realize that much of it has to do with the commitment of LeVar Burton himself. An advocate for literacy for more than 30 years, Mr. Burton and Reading Rainbow have launched a Kickstarter to fund a large scale attempt to improve childhood literacy rates. I’ve supported it not only because I’m a fan, but because I see this as a way to thank Mr. Burton and Reading Rainbow for all the joy they gave me and hopefully help them give that same gift to others. Maybe you can help too? I think it’s valuable–but you don’t have to take my word for it 🙂
